    Calculation Widget showing up incorrectly

    Asked by sloughbottom on November 30, 2016 at 06:27 PM

    The total calculation is showing up as 20 even when nothing is selected on the form. This 20 is coming from the Lard/Tallow calculation and I have tried to adjust it and change and reset everything but it is still showing incorrectly.

    Please help!

    I checked your calculation on a cloned form. I show all the hidden fields and found the Lard / Tallow calculation field that is outputting calculation like this.

    To fix it, double click the multiplication symbol to switch its state to number/calculation. It is currently treated as a text string that's why calculation is not working in this particular field.

    Hope this helps!
